Abstract

A tool kit for fishing is a multi-compartment case for use by fishermen. The case has a separate compartment for each of a plurality of tools. For example, in one embodiment the tool kit includes one each of long nose pliers, bolt cutters, fish mouth spreaders, and scissors for removing hooks from a captured fish, although the number and type of tools may vary. Each tool is separately tethered to the case by a lanyard to prevent loss of the tool. In some embodiments, the case has floatation material to provide buoyancy in order to prevent loss of the entire case of tools. The case may have a single lid closing over all the separate compartments, or the lid may be divided into individual closures for each compartment, the latter providing separate, relatively watertight compartments to improve buoyancy when only one tool is being used.

Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION
  • [0001]
    This application claims the benefit of U.S. Provisional Patent Application Ser. No. 60/604,839, filed Aug. 27, 2004.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0002]
    1. Field of the Invention
  • [0003]
    The present invention relates to tool kits. More particularly, the present invention relates to a tool kit useful for fisherman for removing hooks from fish.
  • [0004]
    2. Description of the Related Art
  • [0005]
    It is common for a fisherman to use gripping, cutting, and fish mouth opening tools during the removal of hooks from a fish. Such tools are particularly useful when the fisherman intends to release the fish, as minimal injury to the captured fish is key to its survival. Such tools are easily lost overboard, as the fisherman tends to lean out of the boat during the removal of tackle and release of the fish. Also, a fisherman may easily drop and lose such tools in a similar manner when wading. It would be desirable to provide a kit having a multi-chambered container for convenient carrying of a variety of such tools. It would also be desirable that the individual tools be tethered to the kit by lanyards or the like to minimize the likelihood of loss of an individual tool. It would also be desirable that the container for the kit be buoyant so that the kit will float if accidentally dropped overboard during fishing from a boat or if the kit is tied to the clothing of a wading fisherman, thereby avoiding loss of the tools and remaining conveniently available for use, but not requiring carrying during fishing.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
  • [0018]
    The present invention is a tool kit for fishermen having multiple compartments and a selection of tools commonly used by fishermen.
  • [0019]
    Referring to FIGS. 1-3, there is shown an environmental perspective view, a front section view, and a perspective view, respectively, of an embodiment of a fisherman's tool kit, referred to generally as 10 in the drawings. FIG. 1 shows a kit 10 tethered to the waist of a wading fisherman F by a flexible cord and a snap hook. However, it will be understood that the tether and snap hook are not essential elements of the invention, and that the kit 10 is equally appropriate for use by a fisherman in a boat without the necessity for a tether attaching the kit 10 to the boat.
  • [0020]
    Tool kit 10 includes a selection of tools 12 housed in a multi-compartment container 14. Container 14 is preferably made of transparent plastic material in order to reveal the tools held individually in each compartment. The container 14 has sidewalls 16, a front wall 18, a rear wall 20 and a bottom wall 21, and has a hinged lid 22 allowing the opening and closing off the compartmented container 14 for access to the desired tools.
  • [0021]
    Container 14 has compartment inner walls 24 spaced from and parallel to sidewalls 16, and hinged lid 22 is attached to rear wall 20 by lid hinge 46, although a hinge 46 is not essential to the invention. The compartments 26 formed by the respective walls and lid each contain a tool 28. As shown, the plurality of tools 12 includes pairs of long-nose pliers, bolt cutters, fish mouth spreaders, and scissors are contained in separate respective compartments 26. Such an assortment is useful for removing a hook from a captured fish, the pliers gripping the hook, the bolt cutter cutting the hook, the fish mouth spreaders holding the fish's mouth open while removing the hook, and the scissors cutting the fishing line. It will be understood, however, that the kit 10 may include additional special purpose tools, such as a compass, signaling device, etc., or a different assortment of special purpose tools for the fisherman.
  • [0022]
    In some embodiments, the container 14 may be equipped with floatation material to prevent loss of the container 14 with its entire plurality of tools 12 should the container be accidentally lost overboard. As best seen in FIG. 3, floatation material such as polystyrene foam, such as Styrofoam® or cork, is cut to form floatation layers 38 and attached by adhesive 40 to the bottom wall 21 shared by each compartment 26, providing buoyancy to the container 14, even when capsized with hinged lid 22 open.
  • [0023]
    In some embodiments, the plurality of tools 12 may be tethered to the container 14 to prevent loss of the tools. As seen in FIG. 3, individual lanyards 30 are attached to respective tools 28 and anchored within their corresponding respective compartments 26. Lanyards 30 are shown attached to inner walls 24 through anchor bores 32 and anchor knots 34. Each tool 28 has a lanyard attachment, such as a knotted loop, as shown. The lid 22 of container 14 has snap latches depending from the front edge of lid 22 and removably snapping, due to the resiliency of the plastic material, over latch receivers 44 protruding outward from the front surface of front wall 18. The container 14 provides a waterproof housing for the tools 28.
  • [0024]
    Referring to FIGS. 4 and 5, there are shown a perspective and a partially exploded view of another embodiment of the fisherman's tool kit. All components of the kit in FIGS. 4 and 5 are the same as the components shown in FIGS. 1-3, except for the container lid. The kit shown in FIGS. 4 and has separate lids 22 a, 22 b, 22 c, and 22 d corresponding to each of the individual compartments 26. As seen, lids 22 a, 22 b, 22 c, and 22 d may be split from container-hinged lid 22 of the embodiment of FIGS. 1-3. Lids 22 a, 22 b, 22 c, and 22 d are shown with respective snap latches 42 a, 42 b, 42 c, and 42 d, respectively and, as shown, may be split from snap latches 42 of the embodiment of FIGS. 1-3. This embodiment allows access to a particular tool 28 while leaving the remaining tools encased in their respective compartments 26. This embodiment also provides for added buoyancy from the remaining closed compartments 26 if the kit 12 is dropped overboard and protects the tools from immersion in the water. As in FIG. 3, lanyards 30 are attached to each individual tool 28, as by the knotted loops as shown, and are anchored in the respective compartments 26 through lanyard anchor bores through compartment inner walls 24 and anchored by knots 34.
  • [0025]
    In use, a fisherman F, upon making a catch, opens the lid or appropriate lids and employs a fish mouth opener and a pair of long-nose pliers as shown to remove the hook from the mouth of the fish. If this is not an option, the bolt cutter may be used to cut the hook off, or the scissors used to cut the line, leaving the hook in the fish. Upon completion of the selected task, the fisherman F returns the tools to their respective compartments and closes the lid or lids.
  • [0026]
    It is to be understood that the present invention is not limited to the embodiments described above, but encompasses any and all embodiments within the scope of the following claims.
